After enrolling at the Constant Magic Academy, Akuto Sai discovers he's not just a gifted student with magical powers; he's destined to become the Demon King. And though he's not that crazy about the idea, it drives the girls wild! From the sexy school girls in his class to the skin-obsessed android who's programmed to seduce him, Akuto has no shortage of wacky girl trouble. How much temptation can a demon king take?

I started watching this the first week it was aired, so I was following most of this as it was being subbed, apart from the last 4 episodes which I burst through this evening by force.

This anime starts off very strong in my opinion, it is funny, it is reasonably paced, the characters are interesting, and although there are hints of being slightly generic on occassion in the first few episodes, I dismissed them as everything else was great.
The intro hooks you as it starts out at a train station, the main protagonist Sai Akuto is getting on the train to his new school with read more

"That's why I decided not to think about anything anymore!"

That's a good one-line summary of this anime taken straight from the last episode. It's safe to say that the enjoyment of this anime is inversely proportional to the amount of plot stuffed into one episode. Simply, the more plot, the less fun. Ichiban is a harem anime. That means it doesn't exist to cater to the brain, and it doesn't. You should be aware that if you're going to watch this anime, then you're watching it for a good laugh, a small smirk, and moments where you can go "Oh Japan!" and laugh at what read more

***May contain spoilers*** Usually I wouldnt do a review if I agree with the current reviews, but I just HAD to express my opinions on this anime.

To start, the anime was quite interesting for the first few episodes. I'm not really a fan of the harem genre, but i really liked that the MC seemed to be quite badass and have lots of power.

However, the entire concept of "Brave" felt super, super stupid and out of place. What a hypocrite. Weak, and given power just because of a suit created by someone else. The "Hero" was really lame - the suit looked stupid, and read more

This is why I liked Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou. It had the most "badass" protagonist I have ever seen (Sai Akuto). I loved how the characters, effects and environment were drawn. There was many turning points where I was amazed how the things turned out absolutely other way, what I first thought. :) Tiny little minus in the anime was that there could have been less ecchi scenes, but most of them were saved by they turning to funny or awkward moments. Which were a good things/parts because I got to laugh in those moments. :P If there is second season coming, Im certainly read more

Anime: Hataraku Maou-sama!
A young male with almost no power (in our world) is actually the mao, demon lord. This is something both male leading characters have in common. They also have some sort of a sidekick and a female character that likes the main character, yet tries to fight him for some reason but grows to like him over time.
Both stories also have some sort of another female love interest that hangs around but this "love interest" is more obvious in Hataraku Maou-sama!

At the start, both male, main characters have little to no "Mao-power" but this...changes without the main character trying to achieve this.  read more

Anime: High School DxD
Both share the Demons/Angels/God theme, Ecchi, Action and the Main Guy ist not a total wuss, unlike in many other Harem Shows.

Anime: Rosario to Vampire
Both have a supernatural school setting with plenty of cute girls and fan service. 
reportRecommended by Kurtz
Anime: Ao no Exorcist
The main character is the incarnation of the greatest evil; however he only wants to be a good guy. Both stories have funny and serious moments (less in Daimaou). As far as I know, there will be an academy atmosphere which is also common in them.

Anime: Needless
Supernatural powers, ecchi, and epic battles.

Anime: Strike the Blood

Both have the same high ranking evil beings who weren't evil at all, but still have to be watched over by female main character to act as their nanny whom were also assign to eliminate them if necessary.

Both have the same supernatural, ecchi, action genre.

Both have the same school setting.


The main character in one anime has a dragon as his familiar, while the other one only has his friends.

One has an extra harem and romance genre, while the other has vampire as its extra genre.
